Night at the Aquarium

Join MMA aquarists for an evening at the MMA Aquarium. Your Aquarium After Dark adventure begins as you enter the Aquarium after public operating hours and are greeted by an ambassador. You’ll learn about the eating habits of some of the Aquarium’s residents. Discover what the sharks and some of your favorite fishy friends do when the sun falls below the horizon and the moon fills the sky in a magical twilight reveal. Learn about animal nocturnal super powers – like enhanced night vision or sleeping with half their brain awake! Plus, you’ll get to meet an animal ambassador and learn how they are perfectly adapted for their adventures after dark. Every Night at the Aquarium program will specifically focus on a dedicated scientific topic! Each event is open to visitors of all ages.
